Team News

  • The injured Anderson could be replaced by Vadim Demidov at centre-back.
  • Manager Veh is unlikely to make any changes in midfield.
  • Karim Matmour is suspended for one game and shold be replaced by Olivier Occean.
  • With Jan Kirchhoff out injured, Julian Baumgartlinger will most likely start in defensive midfield, with Eugen Polanski filling in alongside him on the right.
  • Nikita Rukavytsya and Nicolai Müller compete for the spot alongside Adám Szalai up front.
  • Otherwise, manager Tuchel could field an unchanged team.

Prediction

  • Frankfurt are still fourth in the table and put in a strong performance last weekend, which earned them a draw at Schalke. It remains to be seen how they will deal with the absence of Anderson at centre-back.
  • Mainz are in solid form as well, despite two losses in a row at Hamburg and against Dortmund. If they take their chances more often, a result here would not be a big surprise.
  • Expect Frankfurt to try to dominate possession at home and Mainz to wait for their chances on the break.
